Huastec Terracotta Standing Female Effigy Figure

Lot 0072 Details

Description
Pre-Columbian, northern Veracruz, Huastec culture, Post Classic Period, ca. 1200 to 1521 CE. This is a solid ceramic effigy figure of a woman. She stands, wearing a tunic and a headdress. This figure would originally have been painted, but now is a pale clay color. The Huastec remain a somewhat mysterious culture, occupying territory on Mexico's gulf coast, and seem to be a group of Maya people who migrated northwards. They have a distinctive ceramic and stone sculptural style, which this piece evokes nicely. Comes with custom stand. Size: 2.75" W x 6.2" H (7 cm x 15.7 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Richard Boyd Stifler, NM estate

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.
